I've looked and looked for a while now, and I haven't found a "kit" for a 454. In order to get twin turbos on your motor, you're gonna need to do some fab'n. Like manifolds to fit your car and all the piping. Good luck!

BAD common take a chill pill.

If you have a 454 putting out 500 hp I'm guessing you've got the compression cranked a little. If you run a turbo set up you are going to need a lower compression, or you run the risk of fraging your engine.

I have a friend who put twin (Tractor) turbo's on a 455 Pontiac GTO. The 455 actually came from a firebird. He basically flipped the stock exhaust manifold upside down and put the turbo's directly on them, ran an oil cooling line for the bearings and used water injection to control preignition.

It would "get rubber" @ 60 with 4 people in the car... this thing was a REAL torque monster. Today he is into a little more high-tech Turbo charging on his Harleys. Yes, his Fat Boy is faster than a V-Rod. He also currently holds the land speed record for that class motorcycle. HD has actually come out to to get info on his programing and pictures of his setup.

No, there is no "kits" but don't give up. You will need to do quite a bit of research to get the right turbo's and turbo settings, but holy cow will it ever be a hoot.

Thank you all...bad80,why must you flame every one who dose not even know you?I'm just looking for help and you are not helping.In the thing you tell every one to read for doing something you don't like also says not to be rood.Your probly some 17 year old who's jealous b/c you probly have some crapy 17 second plastic box with a fart pipe...:mad:

1BAD said what he did because your a troll, it`s just as simple as that. he`s 55 years young and has spent his life hot rodding, look at his photo album. He didn`t get hired by Ford and GM because he was a 17 year old with a fart pipe, they hired him because he knows what he`s doing. 1BAD will forget more about hot rodding than you`ll likely ever know. You haven`t shown any respect on this board since you got here, so you got marked as a troll, are you not intelligent enough to see why your not shown any respect in return? there`s rules to be followed and you haven`t followed them, is that not why all your postings end up in the dump? you sure did get a 454 awful fast, where`d you get it? or is it in a die cast LS6 chevelle you ordered from franklin mint? lastly, you want respect? show respect. if your a adult, act like one.

Thanks DV,
To Meka also, Try READING the Guidelines for posting it expiains it all.
None of this will happen if you at least try like it says. Not even being considerate to use a spell checker at the bottom,
it says Spell Checker one icon from sending in the posting.
Get real.

2G !!! That is a REAL bargain nub! Better get it before I do! Hey nub, did you know that on this site, a person can click your profile--and from there read everything that you have ever posted???? Very interesting STUFF,indeed! You yourself even stated at one point that you didn't know much about engines but you were willing to learn!!! Isn't it time to come clean, apologize for the lies, and try to be a productive part of the site (and even use the spell check for a change) before you burn too many bridges??? If not, LOOk it's mama's TEET----nub-nub-nub-nub:embarrass ::drool: :embarrass :drool: :embarrass

+nub+ 11-23-2003 07:30 AM

i duno,i'v been looking for a good turbo kit to get my 383 stroker with 475 hp to 900

What happened to the 383 ?
Not long ago there was a +nub+ and 99% of all his/hers postings are in the Dump.
It sounds like your not weened from the above statement at the bottom of OddRodder's posting.
Your NOT looking for help in ANY of your postings, just asking opinion's for your wet dreams. :( :drunk: :( :embarrass
Since you have been on this site you have never contributed one thing, but whining when you do not like the answer.
There are rules, YES rules for posting as in the Guidelines in which you do NOT care to read or not mature enough to understand.
Go back to the DUMP where you understand the garbage you spread around.
Go talk to your buddy +Edge-Net+ since you both talk the same language.
What goes around comes around, Heres looking at you.
